Rugby results from Saturday, October 1

Douglas' perfect record continues

Douglas beat Wigan 18-17 to keep their winning streak going in South Lancs/Cheshire Division 1. Form man Josh Carine ran in two for Douglas to add to the four he scored for the second team last week. Bryn Snellgrove’s boot accounted for the rest of the points with two penalties and a conversion.


Douglas’ disciplinary woes continued however with three yellow cards in the game to add to the two they received last Saturday and they must start to keep the full team on the ptch for the full match if they want to secure maximum points each outing.


Vagas beaten on the road but snatch a bonus point Vagabonds lost 36-24 away at Port Sunlight in South Lancs/Cheshire Division 2 but managed to run in four tries and pick up a useful bonus point in the process. Aidan O’Shea continued his run of form with two tries and there were supporting scores from front rowers Rob Martin and Kevin Birchall.



Ramsey beat Old Bedians

Ramsey kept up their opening momentum in South Lancs/Cheshire Division 3 with a 21-12 victory against Old Bedians at the Mooragh Park. The game was locked at seven apiece after forty minutes with an Andy Cleator try converted by Dan Bonwick being Ramsey’s only score of the opening half.


In the second half, Andy’s brother Steve picked up Ramsey’s second try which was again converted by Bonwick. Bedians’ pulled one back to unsettle the Mooragh faithful but skipper Bonwick wrapped the game up with the decisive try, which he converted himself.


Vagas Ladies downed by league leaders

Vagas lost 35-0 at home to Barnsley in Womens NC North Division 1and the result sent Barnsley five points clear at the top of the table and leaves Vagas a little way off the pace. Notwithstanding the result skipper Lauren Ellison was proud of her team. She said “we’d never played them before and they were very good. Their coach said afterwards we’d given them their biggest test yet”.


Southern Nomads hammer Ramsey B

A very weak Ramsey B side were out to the sword by defending Shimmin Wilson Shield champions Southern Nomads at King Williams College, with Nomads coming out 155-0 winners. The men in green ran in 23 tries and skipper Mark Young converted 20 of those. Gerard Landels was the Nomads hatchet man with four tries and notable among the others were Dylan Chambers and Owen Carvin, who both ran in hat-tricks on their first-team debuts.
